The New PM on the Ukrainian Side

In response to Zelenskyy's congratulations on accepting the powers of the PM, Giorgia Meloni stated that Ukraine is not alone in the struggle for its freedom

On October 22, 2022, Giorgia Meloni became the new prime minister of Italy. Like many influential politicians, she immediately touched upon the issue concerning Ukraine. Before the election, an Italian politician supported the country under attack by the Russian terrorist federation. On 22 October, the president of the house of ministers took office and made a political statement. 

"Many thanks, Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Italy is and will always be on the side of the brave people of Ukraine that is fighting for its freedom and for rightful peace. You are not alone!" Giorgia Meloni on Twitter.

This position of Italy's first female premier helps to level the balance. Because Meloni's coalition partner, Silvio Berlusconi, recently said that Ukraine is to blame for starting the war. However, Meloni defended the country that suffers and is now accused of any wrongdoing.

"Italy is completely part of Europe and NATO. Anyone who disagrees with this cannot be part of the government. If we are in government, Italy will never be the weakest link in the Western alliance against Russia's military action in Ukraine," Giorgia Meloni's counter-statement.
